The World Cup in South Africa started with a Hungarian feat

Five events will be held at this year’s World Table Tennis Championships in South Africa: women’s and men’s singles, as well as women’s and men’s doubles and mixed doubles.

– I led 1: 0 and 7-4, but then the second set passed and I lost the thread a little. On the other hand, my opponent then relaxed, released his hand and turned around. Fortunately, I was able to collect match five with relative ease, which gave me the confidence to keep going. In the final set, I felt like we were absolutely on equal terms, and I’m so glad I finally managed to beat the European champion. And also because I was able to achieve what I had been practicing for a long time – the MTI match was evaluated by Madarach, who was interested in three numbers at the World Cup in Durban, his partner Georgina Botha in women’s doubles and Nandor Isiki in mixed doubles.

In the men’s singles, Pence Majoros lost to Canadian Eugene Wang 4:2 in the first round. On the other hand, dám Szudi and Nándor Ecseki won, the Hungarian pair ranked 13th in the men’s doubles over the Nigerian pair Abiodun and Aruna 3:2. In the women’s doubles competition, Póta and Madarász also outperformed the Nigerian pair, and the Hungarian girls won 3:0 On Edem and Akpan.

This is the first Table Tennis World Cup to be held in Africa since the 1939 World Cup in Cairo.
